my life to continue that work is your united states senator. >> moderator: thank you. we hope this debate has subfolders as they ponder their decision and a selection only urge you to vote on election day. what you think our candidates, chris murphy and linda mcmahon and our reporter panel, al terzi, dennis house, keisha grant and mark davis if i could have your attention,e program on manufacturing society in the 21st century here at the institute. i welcome you on behalf of the institute both in the audience and those viewing remotely. i wanted to ask our president, walter isaacson, just to say a few words. it's always dangerous when your boss knows as much or more about the subject matter. >> that is definitely not true and that is why it is a pleasure to have tom here at the aspen institute because the one thing we do know about the issue of manufacturing is how important it is to america's economy and how ridiculous it is to try to think of a great economy that doesn't always have a healthy manufacturing sector. and so, when we were looking at the aspen institute and all t
women. >> you bet. >> don't write over mitt. >> don't write over the next president of the united states. my oldest son. he just graduated. >> give them hell today. >> thanks for coming. we have a lot to be excited about today. we are here on a corner -- [inaudible] i know there are a lot of small business representatives and employees here today. for your efforts and hard work, give them a hand. [applause] president calvin coolage once remarked that the business of america is business. his words are as true today as they were when he said them nearly 100 years ago. small business drives our economy, fuels or communities and feeds our families. [applause] small businesses like ours represent 97.8% of all employers. we employ half of america's work force and create between 60 respect -- 60% and 80% of job growth in the country. we know how very important those jobs numbers are. i imagine you feel like i do. i need my job, and so do our employees. thankfully here at ball we have secure jobs. you will see trucks coming and going from a long hard day any minute now. i can't imagine the stres
in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer and you're in "the situation room." >>> monday's third and final presidential debate will be a serious challenge for both candidates. it's focused on international policy and arena where both mitt romney lacks experience and the obama administration is under growing criticism, especially when it comes to the situation in the middle east. let's start with cnn's white house correspondent dan loathian. i assume officials in the white house campaign they know the president has questions he's going to answer. >> reporter: that's correct, wolf. and there doesn't appear to be much of a difference between the two candidates when it comes to foreign policy. but the president is getting prepared in study hall this weekend out at camp david. i think when you talk to folks out there, most people believe the president does have an advantage going into this debate. we expect he'll talk about getting osama bin laden but no one here at the white house, no one with the campaign is under estimating governor romney. he won the first debate. he had a
powder with the maritime powers, like brittany is to be our today, the united states. and then, there is an american and he put these two ideas together. and where the two great powers, the land power and d.c. power come together, he called the shout about. and the middle east is located in one of the world's great shutterbugs. the interesting thing is about them is that small states have the ability to shift the power from one large side to the other, simply because it depends on which side they're on or which side they decide to shift two. in the middle east, the old part with syria and is today. but, after the fall of the soviet union, after the end of the cold war, there was another heart. since the entire east were taking place at that time, when the circulation state joined the middle east, when afghanistan pushed the edge of the middle east. and so today, we have a second part inside the middle east and that is iran. and those two cards, with their particular allies are causing this growing second global cold war. now the first indication we have is that is the reincarna
muslims, not have them isolate the united states of america. i know i can do a better job in iraq. i have a plan to have a summit with all of the allies, something this president has not yet achieved, not yet been able to do to bring people to the table. we can do a better job of training the iraqi forces to defend themselves, and i know that we can do a better job of preparing for elections. all of these, and especially homeland security, which we'll talk about a little bit later. >> mr. president, you have a 90- second rebuttal. >> i, too, thank the university of miami, and say our prayers are with the good people of this state, who've suffered a lot. september the 11th changed how america must look at the world. and since that day, our nation has been on a multi-pronged strategy to keep our country safer. we pursued al qaida wherever al qaida tries to hide. seventy-five percent of known al qaida leaders have been brought to justice. the rest of them know we're after them. we've upheld the doctrine that said if you harbor a terrorist, you're equally as guilty as the terrorist. and the t
. judgment is what we look for in the president of the united states of america. >> you can see more from this foreign-policy debate for the 2004 campaign later tonight along with other debates from our archives. watch the 84 debate between ronald reagan and walter mondale. from 1988, george bush and massachusetts gov. michael dukakis. that is all starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. >> the candidates are heidi heitkamp and rick berg. this is a little less than one half hour. >> welcome to the continuing coverage of election 2012. this is the debate where north seat.a is a u.s. senate sen i am here with berg and heidi heitkamp. thank you so much for being here. both candidates will have a bottom in the closing statement. there will be topics as i mean where there will be discussion and debate. >> thank you. i would like to thank everyone watching. this election may be the most important election in our lifetime. if we did i get our country back on track on the road to growth and prosperity, my children will not inherit the same country we do. i will fight against barack obama's f
? >> caliber of individuals on team were the best in the united states inventory. they could make a difference in any firefight. >> bret: the problem, however, is that s.s.t. is slated to end its tour in libya by summer's end. the security situation taking an ominous turn. >> spring of 2012, terror attacks in libya; is that right? >> true. the nature of things started to change. when i first got on the ground, lawlessness going back and forth. as things progressed. commotion settled down a little bit. target of attack seemed to pick up and targeting more toward westerners. >> april 6, 2012. a bomb is tossed over the wall of the benghazi compound. june 6, 2012. an i.e.d. is placed on the compound north gate. no one is injured in either incident. that is not the case five days later. >> june 11, 2012. a convoy transporting great britain's ambassador is ambushed in benghazi. he isn't hurt but two of his security aides are. >> bret: clear there was a terror attack. >> conducted the investigation a couple of days afterwards. walked the ground. took photographs. examined the vehicle. they knew what
. >> gavin: 150. -plus countries, every state in the united states. it begs the question with your history and the present work you're doing. what world fundamentally are we living in? >> a transforming one. frankly, in a lot of good ways. i think people are always surprised when they meet me, and they expect someone really gloomy and anxiety-ridden and depressed about the world because i'm covering a lot of things. but on global poverty we're making tremendous progress. on so many of these issues that i care about we're inching progress. global health issues. you know, i remember my first trip to africa, and i remember the thing that horrified me the most was how many blind people there were. every capital you would see these middle aged blind people begging and being led around by their children or likely grandchildren, and it was pretty horrifying. now river blindness has been dramatically reduced partly because of jimmy carter more than anybody else. dracoma also it's is also on its way out. you don't have people in their 30s routinely going blind around the world. so many other elemen
the economy. but that changed when terrorist murdered four americans at the united states consulate in benghazi, libya, on the anniversary of 9/11. americans had questions. who did this? how? should our government have seen it coming? did president obama try to hide the truth? is this a huge scand that exposes a failed obama foreign policy? or is mitt romney just saying it is? tonight, we'll try to give you answers. we'll walk you step by step through the terror that unfolded that day. we'll break down the political maneuvering that followed. but we begin with a series of frightening developments and troubling decisions leading up to the horrific night in benghazi. it's a story you haven't heard. told by a man who tried to prevent what happened. on september 11, 2012. >> did you a close relationship with ambassador stevens? >> i lived and worked with him. >> bret: no one understands more than lieutenant colonel andrew wood. of the full extent of the fiasco that killed stevens. he worked closely with stevens for six months in libya before the violent death. a 24-year u.s. special for
francisco today. we bought naval forces from the united states, from russia and japan all to honolulu where we had simulated a tsunami disaster. and these three great nations brought their fleets to honolulu exercising how to respond and alleviate that disaster. well, that was then. how about now? last year the united states released a new security strategy. most of you probably have not even heard of that, but i have to tell you this was a big deal. it was one of the fifth american security strategies that we have issued since the civil war. among the highlights of that security strategy was a strong statement that the united states had the highest economic and security interests in the asia pacific region. not in europe as has been for 100 years prior to that, than the asia pacific region. secondly, that we would maintain freedom of access throughout that region. in particular, we would maintain the sea lanes in that area, whatever the challenge might be. even as we reduce our defense budget, therefore we must maintain and would maintain a powerful navy, and that that navy would be charge
of this decade the united states will be the world's top exporter of oil and liquified natural gas. so we will be ahead of saudi arabia. >> that's incredible. the implication, of the natural gas is you can use that not just as a normal fuel but use it to produce electricity which will make the cost of electricity more stable and cheaper in the united states. which could lead to a resurgence of certain industries. >> the most important -- the natural gas piece, you're right, is very important. it lowers the costs of manufacturing. now when you're thinking about manufacturing, when you're thinking about putting up a plant and bringing workers in america, people think the big problem is the wages of the workers. no. the big thing they worry about is the cost of energy. >> right. >> if energy costs dramatically drop, we're producing gas at $2 for a cubic foot. in russia, they sell it to you at $19. so we're much cheaper. as a result, dow chemical and places like that are beginning real manufacturing operations in the united states. there's also an environmental benefit. natural gas emits half
rush-hour number one enemy." #3, it angers and alienates the united states. and increasingly irritates turkey. why is russia doing this? there is continued disunity in the ranks of the rebels, although after this morning, there's another chance they say to reunify. hopefully, scout, think they won't be able to oust assad. turkey has not been willing to extend their anti-syrian rhetoric. however, the turkish prime minister is quite had strong. if he continues to be provoked by syrian shelling, he may take action. this is why in recent days, following the shelling, forcing down a jet flying to damascus, russia is trying to ply the situation and by increasing the supply of natural gas to turkey, making up for a short fly to iran to maintain good relations between russia and turkey despite what is happening in syria. in conclusion, moscow is taking a major middle east gamble with its policy in syria. if the gamble fails, and i think it will, hopefully if the u.s. get a little more active in the process, moscow's middle east policy will be in deep trouble. thank you. >> thank you very much.
and defend the constitution of the united states and the constitution of the state of california against all enemies foreign and domestic, that i will bear true faith and allegiance to the constitution of the united states and the constitution of the state of california, that i take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that i will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which i am about to enter during such time as i hold the office of -- for the city and county of san francisco. congratulations. thank you very much.

, whether it is efforts in the united states or efforts anywhere on any continent. certainly, i think what is happening in parts of south asia is deeply, deeply troubling. we saw last week in pakistan what happened when a 14-year-old girl was singled out on a bus and shot for standing up for girls' education. i know that she is now in the u.k. receiving the care that she needs to regain her health and go back to hurt important work. certainly, it is critical that those of us who believe only when we live in a world where every person can participate to their full potential is the world we want to see. >> you have definitely found your voice, and you have said that you want to have a public life. is that taking office? >> i don't know. to take office, how have to be elected in the united states. before my mom's campaign in 2008, i would have said no, not as a result of any long, deliberate, thoughtful process, but because of being asked questions for as long as i can remember. >> has america lost a dynasty? >> i don't know about that. i feel a strong call for public service. that is why i a
around the united states government, including the united nations, to susan rice, to the white house. there's not a chance that the cia would withhold this information from the white house or probably the united nations, our office in the united nations, either. it's just the way it works. it's a system. it's almost mechanical. it's hard to short-circuit. in addition, the cia director would be calling the white house and videoconferences, calling the national security council. i have never seen an attack on the united states that was not immediately reported to the white house. >> but you say it's amateur hour to allow ambassador rice to be sent out with the limited information and to say what she said, why? >> well, somebody dropped the ball. i mean, those situation reports should have been going to her office in new york. she should have been stopped from taking, you know, saying what she did. it's a true blunder in a case like this, as we've seen. you know, who did not get her the paper. if she did get the paper and still went out on the talk shows and said it was a demonstration,
citizens. the united states has allowed a situation of people to take refugees status from a tortured. it is not in the abstract. my father was imprisoned and tortured by batista and my aunt was captured by castro. i would love to be part of a justice and we can do that as soon as we do not have a oppressive, up totalitarian regime in chiba. -- cuba. we should change the rules. until that happens, it makes sense to recognize the oppressive regime. it has been longstanding immigration policy that nations that are politically oppressive and people fearing persecution. we have granted them refugee status. >> mr. sadler, is in question. >> we needed for our state. we needed for our nation. we need -- the people coming from mexico here are seeking a better way of life. they are seeking worker and freedom and the american way of life. -- they are seeking work and freedom and the american way of life. i am for a package that involves everyone. it is the only way to get past this and move forward. it is so important. mexico is our number one trading partner. we talk about border patrol and ma
visit to these united states of america, the most daring of human experiments. even today it is a nation of incomparable strengths, unparalleled wealth, unrivaled innovation, and immeasurable goodness. all of which coalesce, all of which form to produce the most supreme culture imaginable. it is the culture that captured the heart and the mind of this australian. it is the idea that shaped these politics and his personality. it is the idea which makes him feel aflush of patriotic resentment every time he hears criticism of a nation of which he doesn't even belong. it is the equation that taught him that everything and anything is possible. it is the nation that embraced him when his own shut upped -- shunned him. this is the land of the possible, the land in which men and women are born equal, and given opportunity through liberty. where liberty is guaranteed, but outcomes are not. it is the same land that unites a california child, tennessee teenager, maryland father, and a wyoming worker, they bond under one flag to dream of a better life, where they are free to pursue their own happin
of then united states. >> question. why can president obama affordfo to be blassee about his pension, michelle? >> i actually though it was funny and he can be blase about it because his pension not sneerly as large as mitt romney's. i think that was the point he was trying to make and it probably did very well with his base. >> well, at 51 he thinks it's a long way in the future as well. but i thought the exchange was a funny exchangeit >> it was funny, yeah. >> but it does point out the hypocrisy on mney's part about china. he's this big tough guy on the campaign trail about china, but he's investing in china at bain and company, he did a lot of work with china, so -- >> well, wait a minute. mort, you have investments in china? >> absolutely. ch you do? >> yeah. i sell magazines in china. least eight people who subscribe to the magazine. >> how come they didn't bail out your magazine? you're only known on the t net. like you, news ek, can you imagine that? newsweek is going to be on neth net. no printed edition. >>it'll reach millions on the net. >> the chinese do not bail out magazines or
now about jobs. the guy who wants to take the president of the united states' job, barack obama, mitt romney's job, it's all about what is happening right here in america. today, the president said, mitt romney is trying to forget how his economic policies benefit the very rich like the owners of this factory. >> he's forgetting what his own positions are. and he's betting that you will, too. i mean, he's changing up so much and back tracking and sidestepping. we've got to -- we've got to name this condition that he's going through. i think -- i think it's called romnesia. that's what it's called. if you come down with a case of romnesia and you can't seem to remember the policies that are still on your website or the promises you made over the six years you've been running for president, here's the good news. obama care covers pre-existing conditions. we can fix you up. we've got a cure. we can make you well, virginia. >> this disease is contagious. vice president joe biden says paul ryan, oh, he's come down with it. >> ryan's saying his budget doesn't decimate medicare and medicaid
for the united states or candidate for president, you don't want to be laughed at. so this is a great way to put a point on something that these last swing voters weren't so aware of. but they'll process it and they'll process it as a trust issue, and they'll process it as he's out of the main stream, and that's why he is switching his positions. >> jennifer: yeah, i love it too. i love that it becomes part of the social media universe as well.% let's go to the polls because romney holds the lead in national polls, and president obama is holding it in the states. do you think the election ends up shaping up to be something like gore v bush potentially all over again where the electoral college and the popular vote may split? >> i think it could. romney is very, very strong in the south. he is going to roar out of the south are very very substantial margins, which could give him the popular vote but he isn't very popular in the swing states. if you are a state that hasn't seen very much advertising, and you don't realize the argument against romney you are forming
the stock market -- it seems like big businesses or whatever, instead of the people of the united states -- really helping us. i could go on on all different issues to be honest, but the reality is how do we solve this to really help all of us, not just businesses or shareholders? guest: this is a valid concern. it is true that over the past three years that the stock market began, the stock market is up a lot and corporate balance sheets are in good shape. their stock prices are not quite get to where they were, but they are getting back their month-by- month. things are much harder for ordinary workers. median wages, those in the middle of the income distribution, those have been falling. they are down below 1997 levels when adjusted for inflation. so, there is no question that this recovery has happened more dramatically and decisively on the corporate side of the larger than for ordinary americans. whoever wins this election in a couple of weeks, one of the fundamental challenges they will face in the next four years, will be how to make sure this recovery goes beyond large, the comp

to move on to another subject, a topic that involves immigration. >> mr. cruz, the united states wet foot-dry foot program allows cubans to come here and it's an opportunity not available to immigrants from other countries. should we extend that to others? >> well, the reason we have a different legal status for cubans is because the situation in that country is different. it is an oppressive, totalitarian regime that tortures and murders its citizens. the united states for centuries has allowed a situation of people seeking refugee status from political oppression and torture. i'll point out this is something for me that's in the about tract. i will point out that this is not abstract for me. my father was imprisoned and tortured. my aunt was imprisoned and tortured. my father was tortured by batista and my aunt was tortured by castro. i would love to be part of anything for this adjustment act. if there is a regime that respects the rights of its citizens and doesn't persecute the rights of its citizens, of course, we should clang the rules. but until that happens, i think it's importan
of the united states. and of western capitalism. it's very, very threatening. and i think that that's why you've had the billionaire class. u know, the minute buack obama -- i would actually say rather gently suggested that the millionaires and the billionaires should pay a little bit more, you had immediate cries of class warfare from the pl yocrats, and very emotional. you know, there was an activi investor who sent an e-mail to his friends, the subject line is, battered wives. and in the e-mail, he compares himself and his fellow multimillionaires to battered wives who are being beat by the president. he actually uses those erds. >> and i thought ird was really interesting, in your book, how you pointed out that bill clinton himself responded to obama's criticism by saying, you know, i would have done it a little bit differently. i think, you know, you can't attack these people for their success. and i think that's very relevant, because if you go back in time it wasn always this way, but i think the shift really begas with clinton and the new democrats. i think after, you know, walter mon
. the chairman, another raging leftist, john walsh, criticized united states senator scott brown, i know he's a man, but there's a point, criticized him for -- in a television ad, for folding laundry because he was trying to be an honorary girl. how about that? oh, you're not supposed to say that sort of thing. bill mar called sarah palin every name in the book, called michele bachmann every name in the book, david letterman has done it, kris matthews has done it again and again and again, insulting women. letterman attacked sarah palin's daughter. she was 14, giveƱmer a break. nothing, nothing ever happened. it is profound hypocrisy, a theme that runs through the book, how incredibly hypocritical the left has been in ripping the country apart, claiming to be the champions and defender of women, and yet, they just defend liberal women, and their policies are systematically reeking have vac on the groups they claim to champion. women is the perfect example. highest poverty rate in 17 years because of the result of the job killing policies of this administration. the extreme poverty rate for
that alison just mentioned a couple of minutes ago, and that is competitiveness. the united states has the most competitive tax structure in the world -- how do you create? worldwide american companies are in a position to pursue about 85% of the world's consumers who are outside the united states and there's the recognition of the u.s. tax code should be the thing to put them on that platform to compete effectively. number one, you need more revenue. and if the democrats know how the revenue comes about, great. if you can get the money that satisfies these obligations, that is an area of common ground. let's move forward on that basis. i'm glad to hear that alison is not just saying hardened dogma. people like patty murray are just saying it will need to raise taxes. i'm glad to hear that oleson is not defending that. -- that alison is not defending that. we have an army of people in the united states that have to be hired. we have 1.2 million people in the compliance side. we of 1.4 million people who are underemployed. the need for simplicity is the common ground that we can go for.
